6:31 pm
wind ♪ this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: today, the republican candidate for president stood on one stage and denied accusations of sexual assault, and the first lady stood on another and chastised him over his treatment of women. since friday, five women have told newspapers that donald trump assaulted them years ago. trump called those accusationsalize, spun by an alliance of the clinton campaign, and what he called "the media." >> they will attack you. they will slander you. they will seek to destroy your career and your family. they will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. they will lie, lie, lie. and then again they will do worse than that.
6:32 pm
they will do whatever's necessary. the clintons are criminals. remember that. they're criminals. ( applause ) people who are capable of such crimes against our nation are capable of anything. and so now wecracy the slander and libels that was just last night thrown at me by the clinton machine and the "new york times," and other media outlets as part of a concerted, coordinated, and vicious attack. these vicious claims about me of inappropriate conduct with women are totally and absolutely false. >> pelley: trump has already apologized for his vulgar remarks on that 2005 video that surfaced last week. in counter-point to trump today, this was michelle obama. >> i can't stop thinking about
6:33 pm
this. it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. it's like that sick, sinking feel you get when you're walking down the street minding your own business, and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. or when you-- you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long, and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. it's that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them or forced himself on them, and they've said no, but he didn't listen. the shameful comments about our bodies. the disrespect of our ambitions and intellect. the belief that you can do anything you want to a woman? it is cruel. it's frightening. and the truth is, it hurts.
6:34 pm
this is not normal. this is not politics as usual. ( applause ) this is disgraceful. it is intolerable. and it doesn't matter what party you belong to-- democrat, republican, independent-- no woman deserves to be treated this way. none of us deserves this kind of abuse. ( applause ) >> pelley: now, let's bring in major garrett covering the trump campaign and nancy cordes who is on the clinton campaign. major, first to you. trump also said today that very soon he would release evidence to refute these allegations of sexual assault. >> reporter: scott, those familiar with the inner workings of the trump campaign tell us if the republican nominee had such hard evidence, he would have released it publicly already on facebook, twitter, and elsewhere. now, trump demanded the "new york times" retract a story in which two women were quoted saying trump accosted them in
6:35 pm
unwanted and sexually aggressive ways. the "times" said the story was thoroughly reported in the national interest and said it welcomed a threatened legal challenge from trump. and only last sunday, trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway tweeted that hillary clinton was right several months ago when she said every victim of sexual assault should be heard, believed, and supported. but, scott, i must tell you at this really here in cincinnati and elsewhere today, trump supporters have told us they simply do not care about these allegations. >> pelley: major, thank you. nancy cordes, what has hillary clinton said about all this today? >> reporter: well, first of all, she said twice that everyone should go and watch michelle obama's speech. he also told supporters at a fund-raiser here in san francisco, that she's worried that some of the rhetoric coming from her opponent will discourage voters from both sides from getting out to the polls on election day. she said somewhat tongue in cheek, scott, that if her campaign does the job, and if
6:36 pm
her supporters go and vote, then the upside is in 26 days donald trump won't innocent news anymore. >> pelley: and every day, wikileaks has been leaking out more internal e-mails from the clinton campaign. what did we see today? >> reporter: 1800 more sensitive documents, staffers talking about everything from tensions between top aides to clinton's e-mail scandal. her running mate suggested today that some of these hacked e-mails might be faked, but so far, scott, the campaign hasn't given us any specific examples of that. >> pelley: make, nancy cordes, thanks very much. make note of this-- trump's running mate, mike pence, will be a guest tomorrow on "cbs this morning." don't miss it. those hacked e-mails are a plot by the russians to disrupt the election, at least according to the u.s. government, which also alleges that the russians are trying to break into state voting systems. one of those attacks was in
6:37 pm
arizona where we find jeff pegues. >> reporter: the hacking attempt on arizona's voter database start immediate rural hela county when an elections worker opened an e-mail attachment. >> very scary stuff. >> reporter: michelle reagan, arizona's secretary of state says, it was malware meant to attack these servers holding the voter information of four million people. >> we had a cyber-security team in place. >> reporter: reagan was alerted by the f.b.i. experts believe the russian government is to blame. what was your initial reaction? >> shock. and dismay, obviously, because we've never had to worry about foreign invaders coming in and trying to mess with our confidence in our election system. >> reporter: arizona, illinois, florida, and nearly two dozen other states have seen similar scanning, probing, or braeches of their election systems. >> the russians have a different doctrine than we do. >> reporter: for over a
6:38 pm
decade, jim lewis has advised the u.s. government on cyber attacks. >> they're using information as a way to achieve their political goals. they don't need the red army anymore. they have the internet. >> reporter: president vladimir putin and other senior russian officials have denied involvement, calling u.s. accusations nonsense. >> the biggest thing we were worried about was did they take any information? >> reporter: reagan says she is confident the voter database wasn't compromised. but she says the attacks continue. in september alone, officials here say that there were 192,000 intrusion attempts, about 11,000 of them posed a serious threat. reagan and 32 other secretaries of state have asked the department of homeland security for help. >> i liken it to when you're being invaded by russia, you don't call in your national guard. at some point, you have to say, you know, i need the army."
6:39 pm
>> reporter: changing actual vote totals is difficult because most voting machines are not connected to the internet. but throwing confusion into an already-contentious election, that's a lot easier. and, scott, that's what officials believe the russians are trying to do. >> pelley: jeff pegues for us tonight. jeff, thank you. and another note-- cbs news will be bringing you live coverage of the third and final clinton-trump debate. that's in las vegas next wednesday at 9:00 eastern, eight can:00 central. today, nicole hit bermuda as a powerful category 3 hurricane. and don dahler is there. >> reporter: since 1851, bermuda has only had seven major hurricanes come close. number eight has just arrived. category 4 nicole has just gotten close enough for us to start experiencing the early rain bands and high wind. within hours, nicole slammed ashore with a fury this island has rarely seen. huge waves crashed over the

destroyer "mason" reported coming under attack by antiship missiles fired from territory held by the iranian-backed rebels. a second destroyer, the u.s.s. "nitze," launched cruise missiles at three unmanned radar stations u.s. fortunes believed had been used against the attacks against the "mason." knocking out the radar will severely degrade the accuracy of future attacks. the weapon fired against the "mason" was an unsophisticated version of the silkwork antiship missile, which has poor accuracy to begin with but carries a large warhead. this video purports to show what happened when one of them hit a ship belonging to the united arab emirates earlier this month. none of the missiles fired at the "mason" reached their target. even without radar, the rebels could still fire missiles aimed at american ships. and if they do, the pentagon has already vowed to retaliate again. scott. >> pelley: david martin at the
